Explains the features of Windows PowerShell on Windows RT.
The Windows RT operating system is installed on devices that
use Advanced RISC Machine (ARM) processors, including thin
and lightweight devices, such as ultrabooks and tablet
Windows PowerShell 3.0 is included in Windows RT. All cmdlets,
providers, and modules, and most scripts designed for Windows
PowerShell 2.0 and Windows PowerShell 3.0 run on Windows RT
Because Windows RT does not include all Windows features,
some Windows PowerShell features work differently or do
not work on Windows RT-based devices. The following list
explains the differences.
-- Windows PowerShell ISE is not included in and cannot run
on Windows RT. Windows PowerShell ISE requires Windows
Presentation Foundation, which is not included in
-- Windows PowerShell remoting and the WinRM service
are disabled by default. To enable remoting, use the
Enable-PSRemoting cmdlet. Also, use the Set-Service
cmdlet to set the startup type of the WinRM service
to Automatic or Automatic (Delayed Start).
While remoting is disabled, you can use Windows PowerShell
remoting to run commands on other computers, but other
computers cannot run commands on the Windows RT device.
-- Domain-joined computing and Kerberos authentication are
not supported on Windows RT. You cannot use Windows PowerShell
to add or manage these features.
-- Microsoft .NET Framework classes that are not supported
Windows RT are also not supported by Windows PowerShell
on Windows RT.
-- Transactions are not enabled on Windows RT. Transaction
cmdlets, such as Start-Transaction and transaction
parameters, such as UseTransaction, do not work properly.
-- All sessions on Windows RT devices use ConstrainedLanguage
language mode. ConstrainedLanguage language mode is a companion
to UMCI. It permits all Windows cmdlets and Windows PowerShell
language elements, but restricts types to ensure that users cannot
use Windows PowerShell to circumvent or violate the UMCI protections.
